There u go

Brembo is the best of course..but they cost over $2500...Wilwood is good, they cost around $680.00 for the rotors only, and u can the kit w/ 4 or 6 (i forgot) pistons calipers but it cost more....i got mine AEM for $250 used and they work awesome and they do offer 6 pistons calipers w/ brake rotor kit and again they cost its all depends on how much u r willing to spend for the brake system...

If your going to be doing autocross and heavily braking all the time i would suggest dumping some money on your brakes...they are the only safety feature on a car I really trust and you can have a great running car with perfectly tuned brakes without having to dump 3k on 6 piston calipers...four pistons are more then enough and will give you great stopping power...erm..I've lost my focus..uh long story short...don't go cheap but get what you think will meet your needs.
